Merkel Says Multiculturalism Has Failed
German prime minister Angela Merkel told members of her Christian Democratic Union party that efforts to live side-by-side with Muslims have failed, and suggested all immigrants learn German and embrace Christian values. What do you think?

"On at least half of this point, Germany and al-Qaeda agree."

1. With all our problems our country has been successful in
integrating others into our society. The one thing I would
question---religion. Of course our country was founded
on Religious Freedom. I think she may be saying they could
be more successful by integrating immigrants rather than
having separate communities(multi-curalism). They might be
better of finding some common values to stress and not be
trying to change Religion.
